Ibanez Japan Steve Vai Signature PIA3761 Electric Guitar Onyx Black w/Hard Case
The Ibanez Steve Vai PIA3761 is the result of Vai's vision to create an instrument that captures the thrill of his legendary JEM models while incorporating exciting new features. After 33 years of collaboration, Vai and Ibanez have crafted a guitar Vai calls "the next evolution of the JEM." The PIA3761 offers unparalleled tone and playability for shredding virtuosos and rock guitarists alike.
The PIA3761 is a work of art, from its sculpted alder body to distinctive gold hardware. Its eye-catching petal grip and PIA blossom inlay, designed by Vai, represent the synergy between artist and instrument that gives rise to something greater than the sum of its parts. The petal grip offers a balanced, contemporary esthetic and symbolizes the unity between Vai and Ibanez in realizing this vision.
The PIA3761 is loaded with a trio of DiMarzio UtoPIA pickups voiced to Vai's specifications, with enhanced lows, scooped mids, and smooth highs. The neck humbucker produces a warm, rich tone, while the bridge humbucker snarls with enhanced midrange for searing lead lines. The single-coil middle pickup provides traditional Strat-like spank.
The PIA3761 features a 5-piece maple and walnut neck and rosewood fretboard for outstanding stability, articulation, and sustain. Its Prestige fret edge treatment provides a silky-smooth feel for fluid playing. The slim, flat PIA neck and jumbo frets give the PIA3761 a familiar feel for shredders and effortless playability.
The PIA3761's Edge tremolo bridge was designed for the fast response and radical pitch bends Vai demands. Its stud lock function provides extreme stability for dive bombs and flutters. The Lion's Claw tremolo cavity allows for adjusting the tremolo system and changing strings with ease.
